COME ALIVE Milwaukee
Phase 2 will involve initiating a longitudinal cohort in the high risk zip codes identified in Milwaukee (53206, 53216, 53205, 53210, 53218, 53209, 53225, 53212, 53224, 53223) and testing novel lifestyle interventions throughout the community.
Throughout the 6 year project, we will also develop and implement a number of efforts to recruit and train the next generation of change agents combating health disparities in Milwaukee, as well as, disseminating novel and high impact strategies to eliminate health disparities at the organizational and department level. These efforts will include pipeline programs spanning from middle school through graduate school, development of an applied postdoctoral training program in health disparities research, and recruitment of faculty members focused on health disparities research. In addition, we will conduct annual one-day health fairs to showcase best practices in academic-community partnerships focused on eliminating health disparities, and an annual one-day State of the Science conference in health disparities to highlight innovative interventions and future directions.
COME ALIVE Milwaukee Launch
On February 13, 2019 we launched the COME ALIVE Milwaukee program at the Greater Galilee Baptist Church Family Life Center highlighting the overarching goal and calling on multisectoral leaders to join in the effort to address health disparities in Milwaukee.
